New Widget Named “Countdown” In AdWords Makes Ad Copy Easy

Adding a dynamic countdown — to show the days until a deadline like a sale starting or registration period ending, for example — has gone through several iterations. There’s the countdown script, then Google debuted ad customizers with a countdown variable. Now Google is building on the ad customizer functionality with a new widget.

As soon as you type “{=” into a line of ad copy in the AdWords web interface, the widget will appear. Now just pug in the date and time the countdown ends and the days ahead of the countdown end date that you want your ads to start running.


The time zone defaults to the “Ad viewer’s time zone”, or you can change that to the time zone that the account is located in.
